London. Michaelmas Term lately over, and the Lord Chancellor sitting in Lincoln's Inn Hall.
Implacable November weather. As much mud in the streets, as if the waters had but newly
retired from the face of the earth, and it would not be wonderful to meet a Megalosaurus,
forty feet long or so, waddling like an elephantine lizard up Holborn Hill. Smoke lowering
down from chimney pots, making a soft black drizzle, with flakes of soot in it as big as full
grown snowflakes - gone into mourning, one might imagine, for the death of the sun. Dogs,
undistinguishable in mire. Horses, scarcely better, splashed to their very blinkers. Foot
passengers jostling one another’s umbrellas in a general infection of ill-temper and losing
their foothold at street-corners, where tens of thousands of other foot passengers have been
slipping and sliding since the day broke (if this day ever broke), adding new deposits to the
crust upon crust of mud, sticking at those points tenaciously to the pavement, and
accumulating at compound interest.
Fog everywhere. Fog up the river, where it flows among green aits and meadows; fog down
the river, where it rolls deified among the tiers of shipping and the waterside pollutions of a
great (and dirty) city. Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights. Fog creeping into
the cabooses of collier-brigs; fog lying out on the yards and hovering in the rigging of great
ships; fog drooping on the gunwales of barges and small boats. Fog in the eyes and throats of
ancient Greenwich pensioners, wheezing by the firesides of their wards; fog in the stem and
bowl of the afternoon pipe of the wrathful skipper, down in his close cabin; fog cruelly
pinching the toes and fingers of his shivering little 'prentice boy on deck. Chance people on
the bridges peeping over the parapets into a nether sky of fog, with fog all round them, as if
they were up in a balloon and hanging in the misty clouds.
